is mentioning in all of these tragic shootings, including the law office in san francisco, they were all gone- free calzones. -- gun-free kill zones. the gun is not the common denominator, but these allow any madman or criminal with any kind of fire arm to come in and shoot as many law-abiding americans as he can. this proves not that the gun is the problem but that gun-control itself is a failure because there is no stronger form of gun control than to say no one is allowed to have a gun at all. otherhat's exactly the common denominator for all of these tragic occurrences. not one person in the mainstream media has pointed it out to their viewers because it does not sit with their anti-bond big it should -- anti-gun bigotted nature. it is being marketed shamelessly in the mainstream media. i swear these people are trying to introduce a new form of bigotry and to american culture. gun-control is the new racism. cnn in particular should be ashamed of itself for what it has done this week on trying to manipulate and inflame the prejudices against guns and gun owners. it's despicable and it's a

in the middle of this enormous sinkhole in lafayette, california, about 20 miles east of san francisco. you can see some of the crews here clearing away the debris. let me explain to you how this happened. there is actually a creek that runs underneath this, or it did. and it basically got clogged and it tore away all the dirt, all the mud, and with it brought down the street. you can see the entire street basically caved in, no traffic going on either side. this is a major inconvenience for the people who live in this neighborhood. you can see one of the things that crews had to do is they had to set up a temporary sewer line. also a temporary water line. this is one of the lines here, they went to extraordinary lengths to make sure that the people in this neighborhood aren't affected in terms of their basic services. now, this was one of the storms that came by, just a couple of days ago, and, of course, more rain is in the forecast. this is really the last thing that people need in this area and throughout the bay area as well. brooke? >> dan, thank you. how about this? you've been putting o

pinned to his army uniform and was denied service at a san francisco barber shop. the barber dismissed him with the words "we don't serve japs here." one of daniel inouye's great legacies in his successful fight to defeat that brand of racism and discrimination was his total fight against any form of discrimination against anyone, especially people with disabilities. throughout his political career, he fought for civil rights and social justice not only for japanese-americans but for all americans. mr. president, i have lost not only a friend of nearly four decades, also my chairman on the committee on appropriations and its subcommittee on defense. senator inouye was well known as a stalwart advocate for national defense and for veterans, but he also fought very passionately to advance education, the national institutes of health, other programs that are in the jurisdiction of my appropriations subcommittee on labor, health, human services and education. i will never forget what senator inouye said one time in a meeting in which my bill on health and education, labor, n.i.h., centers
